Did you re-prop? How much can you fill the 750's in the rear?

The 22 I ride in at times has 1200 in the bow and 750's in the rear. We put a bow sack in one day and the wake gained a ton of mass. It's just a pita to fill it.

yes i got the wakeboard prop when i ordered the boat gets up on a plane just fine.the 750's fill all the way up plus some.they almost fill the hole rear compartment. hey ryan which bow sack did you use and do you think that you can fit the integrated bow sack under the seats.

Now the one that sits above the seats the integrated bow sack may work.

I am running the GG bag (1150 lb) in the front locker and then the 650 lb bag in each of the back compartments. I have found that filling the front one full and then the rear bags only 2/3 full produces the best wake. Wake plate around the middle. Very consistent, hard and clean. When we fill the rears we start having problems keeping consistent and then typically keep the wake plate down. The wake must be huge the way you are running. Is it staying consistent?

hey diggs love the black tower i was going to do that to mine but thought it might be to much black.i was wrong looks sweet! sounds like you are running the same weight ratio i am 50/50 i like a steeper wake so i run the plate 100-75% stays consistent with a little lip on top for some extra you think that the integrated bow sack would fit under the front seats i would like to plumb one in but don't know how much weight i would get out of one.

I would be interested in the wake descriptions as well as pictures. What does it compare to like this... what is the size, shape, etc?

I have a 24SSV with the 1200lb bag up front... two 800 or so in the rears and about 300 of lead up front. I like the wake as it has a nice transition with a little lip to pop you up at the top.

I am considering the 22SSV for later this year or next year if it gives a comparable (or better wake) with the same or less weighting.

dave i demoed 2 24ssv's last year and 1 22ssv both had stock ballest.i thought the 24 had a longer transition and looked bigger from the boat but i thought that the wake was too narrow i keep going out instead of up.the 22 reminded me more of my old mobius and my buddies 05 x-star fully weighted that i rode behind all last year becuase i sold my mobius at the begining of the year.the wider the wake the shorter the rope the bigger the wake thats just my opinion.

I have an 07 22 and that wake is dialed. I am running the 1150# GG sack up front with the 400# bags in the back. I run my wakeplate about 50% like the stock setting but tweaked it up a little bit last night to about 75% and it seemed to make it a bit lippier. I opted not to go for the larger rear bags as I don't want to have to monitor where they are as far as filling goes.

bryan i have the 750's in the back and they fill all the way up with no problems just wait for the water to come out of the overflow and your full.hey do you have your 1200# bag slide all the way up or back becuase if its back the hatch door pops much weight do you think the bag really gets in it becuase you can't fill it all the way up.i think maybe 1000#

Hey Dicky why don't we try that baby out? I pulled you all last year why don't you repay the favor! I just gave you 210 lbs of lead. Buy the way you should of went with the black tower. But either way your boat and truck combo is one of the best I've seen by far.
